Jupiler Pro League side Genk are set hijack rivals Anderlecht for the signature of Red Bull Salzburg defender Gideon Mensah.

Mensah who is on-loan at Zulte Waregem from RedBull Salzburg has emerged in the wanted list of several clubs including the two Belgium giants.

The 21-year old was impressive during his loan spell Waregem making three assist in 23 appearance for the club.

Anderlecht were said to be on the lead to secure his signature, but a fresh interest from Genk could see the two clubs goes head to head to lure the service of the former WAFA midfielder.

Mensah has a contract with Red Bull Salzburg until 2025.
